You Said It, Man

While having lunch in the cafeteria yesterday, I spotted the hospital chaplain wearing a t-shirt that said "Jesus Loves Me More Than You".

This guy always wears t-shirts over his preist gear, so you can clearly see his collar while also reading a cute slogan like, "the family that prays together stays together". He's a kooky, non-traditional type. He runs around in Birkenstocks telling inocuous jokes in busy hallways to no one in particular. He moves like a cat who's always startled. You know what I'm saying.

So, I'm wondering if when he spotted this latest shirt he read "Jesus", "loves", "me" and "you" without actually grasping the meaning of the statement.

He's a priest running around a hospital with a shirt stating yeah, I'm in with Jesus more than you, what can ya do?

Side note: Lately, more and more when I see the word "Jesus" I think of John Turturro in The Big Lebowski. What I'm saying is this, "Nobody fucks with the Jesus".

UW Flashes the Finger

The University of Washington is featuring a slide show of Seattle Chapter Black Panther photos on its web site in order to showcase the special Memory and History Project.

That project is worth checking out on its own, however I noticed this one photo in particular as it flashed on the UW home page.

So, you tell me. One of the coolest pictures ever?

Ultimate Ultimate Video Game

This post is in response to Schmubb's 4/28 thought: "I think I think that there should be an Ultimate Frisbee playstation game."

I don't think this is entirely out of the question. In fact, this idea will make us millions: make an Ultimate game for the new Nintendo system that utilizes the gyroscopic controller. In order to "throw" the disc, you have to approximate the motion yourself with the controller. Wanna throw it fast and straight? Keep the controller level and whip it away from your body. Need some arc to that toss? Make a lobbing motion at the angle you want the frisbee to take. To catch a disc, lower the controller sharply to the floor at the moment of contact. All throwing and catching could be done in first person view. Viewpoint changes to each player as they have possession of the disc. Or you could play third person, I dunno. I do know that Nintendo should hire me. Like, yesterday.

You know, Rockstar Games - the makers of the sex, drugs, shoot-a-hooker-in-the-face Grand Theft Auto series - is developing a table tennis video game for XBOX360. We can make this happen, folks.

Big Baller/Shot Caller

So now I'm on a basketball team. I actually own a pair of And1's and rock my shorts baggy to match my jersey. I'm number 12. My theory is that if I look like I know what I'm doing, I'll get respect on the court.

We, the Road Runners, had our first game on Sunday and only lost by 17 points. My theory didn't quite pan out in practice as this one girl insisted on stealing the ball from me...twice. Well, the second time she forced me into a travel, but the point is zero respect. Maybe I should start wearing a headband.

I'm also thinking of getting a basketball tattooed on my shoulder. I've noticed that's popular in the NBA and, well, those guys are good.
